Gedesby church is built with a longhouse in the Gothic style with with pointed arch windows and a Gothic tower base, of brick in monk bond. Originally the church was crown land, that is royal property until 1767, when it along with the main church in Skelby was sold along with the rest of Falster equestrian goods.
The altarpiece of the Dutch wing type from 1573 is pretty and well preserved with a figure rich crucifixion scene. The Chalice is composed of parts from different times, the oldest parts of approx. 1600. The Baptismal basin of brass about 1645. Pulpit from 1600 in Renaissance style. Organ with 5 octaves from Frobenius in 1938. Two epitaphs, both from inn keepers of the Gedesby Inn, which had royal privilier up to the 17th century.
Before reaching into the church, there is the storm surge stone outside a label that shows the water level in the flood the 1872. Add this water level to the included hurricane waves, it's really incredible that everything and everyone was not sea prey.In Gedesby church is a child's coffin at the ceiling waiting to have a child to the grave. The child drowned during the flood in 1872, but was never found. In total 22 people in Gedesby drowned during the flood, and there was made coffins for all of them. But the little girl had disappeared without trace.
The cemetery is surrounded by hedges and walls of split boulders.References:
Krickenbeck moated castle is one of the oldest on the lower Rhine. Its history dates back to the year 1104, when the castle was first mentioned. It is unclear why the old castle, which was certainly inhabited by Count Reginar, was abandoned or destroyed. In the mid-13th century the castle was moved to the current location. At the end of the 14th century the new castle belonged to the Counts of Kleve.
Johann Friedrich II of Schesaberg converted the castle into a Baroque mansion between 1708-1721. On September 7, 1902, a fire destroyed the entire mansion. From 1903 to 1904, a three-winged castle was built in the Neo-Renaissance style. Today Krickenbeck is a conference center.
